Public Irish sessions can sometimes be stressful for a new player. They are often held in pubs, at a fast and furious pace, and there can seem to be some kind of unspoken communication going on between the players.
A slow-session workshop serves to impart ensemble skills which cannot be had from private lessons or solo practice. It will also ease a player into familiarity with a session situation. Several skills are taught:
- learning to listen to others while you are playing
- playing a tune with steady rhythm from start to finish
- playing a tune with steady rhythm while others
falter around you (!)
- having fun while sharing your music with others
In a slow-session workshop, the pace is slow and steady, and there is no pressure. Questions are answered. No question is too silly to ask. We have a great time, please join us!
Open to current and former students on all traditional instruments. Usually held monthly.
Rates: $20 per one hour workshop. Students may also sign up without classes or flute lessons. Contact Lesl to sign up.
